Why are barriers present to acquire America real estate? Our country provides an unparalleled unique combination of title records, property rights and financial systems. A solution is present …….
As the post mentions, the agent believes that digital currency is where the future is and plans on continuing using it and advocating for it as he further expands his business.
There are other home selling platforms such as Bitproperty and Cryptohome that are employing similar processes. Kenny Hayslett, CryptoHome founder, talked about the benefits of using Bitcoin in real estate.
The most mysterious thing about Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies is why they aren’t used more. It is simply digital money, a medium of exchange that uses cryptography to safely and securely transfer assets.
So while people may be partaking in crypto transactions for smaller assets, these examples show that there is a use and further potential for the use of bitcoin and cryptocurrency for bigger investments such as property as well.
